Hi Knut,
It sounds like either your installation was incomplete, or you have a
corrupt ~/.kde3 directory.  Try moving your ~/.kde3 directory to something
like ~/.kde3.bkp (from the command line, i.e. when you are not logged in
to KDE3.5) and try logging in again.  If that doesn't work, your
installation is incomplete or has been corrupted somehow.
